THE UNFORGETTABLE SONG OF THE LITTLE ROAD


Cinema, around the world, owes its stature and respect today, to few names who struggled in their times to produce masterpieces that would influence and inspire the works we see today. The late 1940s and the 1950s was the period when the foundation of real cinema was laid. France, Italy, Britain, Japan and also India contributed to this movement with sincere and soul moving cinema. In the context of India, the name that is without a doubt the most prominent and consequential in the global movement is Satyajit Ray.

BRAVO! SHELTON FILMS


Well pardon us for the inconsistency in posting new articles. Both of us have been pretty much caught up with exams and stuff like that. Gladly, we were able to finally work on something. Happened to find a bunch of really interesting YouTube short films by a certain Shelton Films and we really, really loved them…
Their first short , My Name is Lisa won the 2007 Best YouTube short film and is truly a very touching take on how a child takes care of her mother suffering from a memory loss disease. The girl here, played by Carlie Nettles, did an amazing job and was casted again in another short film RUNNING (About a teenage girl trying to run away from home, probably their best work)
